No problem! They did get back to me. Here is what they said

Hi Bridget,

If you are already a 5k graduate, then we recommend that you start on week 9 of the 10k app. You can always go back a couple weeks to see what the specific workout will be.

We have a free version of the 10k app, so you can download it at no cost and see which week you are comfortable starting with.

As for the 1/2 marathon trainer, our program is made for beginner trainers, so it is based off of a "run/walk" schedule. While I can't give you the entire schedule, I have submitted a snippet of the training program:

Of course it will not show up here, sigh. If you want me to send it to you, spark mail me your email and I'll send it.

Basically it has you run/walking intervals during the week, three times, cross training twice, then Saturday running miles. You can always change your days around. Week one is 3 miles, week 4 is 4 miles. then it jumps to week 10 for 10 miles, week 11 is 8, week 12 is 6, so doing a taper.emoticonemoticonemoticonemoticon

hope you find this helpful!

Happy training,
Bradley

While this seems fine, and a good app, I can plan all this in RUNKEEPER for free and use my own music too. Not that this app is that expensive!

OOPs sorry about that ya I definitely misunderstood. I know now what you mean I have looked at Jeff Galloways workout to. So for C25K App it increases in the beginning by time and do not show milage , until week 5 day 2. The 10 App and the HAlf and the Marathon are all kinda of the same then number of repetitions increases each week. For my knees , shins splints, ankles, hips I used this app in combination with Chi Running and I was pretty much pain free.

The app goes like this for C25K:
Start each run with a 5 mins warm up walk and end with a 5 mins cool down walk.

Week1 day 1, 2 and day 3 jog for 60 secs and walk 90 seconds for 20 mins.
Week 2 day 1, 2 and day 3 jog 90 seconds and walking 2 mins.
Week 3 day 1: 2 repetitions of the following: Jog for 90secs, walk 90 secs , walk 90 seconds , jog 3 minutes, walk 3 minutes.
Week 3 day 2: 2 repetitions of the following: jog 90 secs, walk 90 seconds,joj 3 mins,walk for 3 mins
Week 3 day 3: 2 repetitions of the following: jog 90 ses, walk 90 secs, jog 3 mins walk 3 mints.
Week 4 day 1 2 and 3: Jog for 3 mins, walk 90 secs, jog 5 mins,walk 2.5 mins, jog 3 mins,walk 90secs, jog5mins
Week 5 day 2 Jog 3/4 miles or 8 mins then walk 1/2 mile or 5 mins then jog 3/4 mile or 8 mins.
Week 5 day 3 jog 2 miles or 20 mins.
Week 6 day 1 jog for 5 mins walk for 3mins jog for 8 mins walk for 3 minutes.
Week 6 day 2 Joj 1 mile or 10 minutes walk 1/4 mile or 3minutes, jog 1 mile or 10 mins.
Week 6 day 3 jog 1 2.1/4 mile or 22 minutes with no walking
Week 7 day 1 JOj2.5 miles or 25 mins not walking
Week 7 day 2Joj 2.5 miles or 25 mins
Week 7 day 3 jog 2.5 miles or 25 mins
Week 8 day 1 joj 7.75 miles or 28 mins
Week 8 day 2 Jog 2.75 miles or 28 mins
Week 8 day 3 jog 3 miles or your 5 K RUN!!!!!!
At the end I ran the distance of 5 K on May 6, 2012 but for me it took 42 minutes.

You misunderstood the question. I need to see the entire work out week by week, how many miles they plan on you running. I started with Jeff Galloway's 1/2 plan and his mileage increase was too much for me once I exceeded 6 miles. Instead of doing two weeks light then increase 2 miles, I believe I am better off to increase by 1/2 or 1 mile a week, the 6 to 8 mile jump was too much for my knees. emoticon

I did put in a question for the makers of the app and I'll post the reply.

The apps I shared with you below, will also tell you the miles aproxomently that you will achieve most weeks more to the middle of the C25K program. ALso the Half your asking about yes a I shared below a app for a Half marathon. Check it out. It is fantastic. I have downloaded the C25K the 10 K and Marathon as I know I have use the first half of the marathon training for a half marathon.

you can down lode gps to track how far you go while running. But it is just a easy to clock it off in your car .

I wanted to share this with all of you as I did use the C25K app and it was fantastic and easy to use. Zen Labs has the following apps. They are fantastic and easy to use !
You can listen to you own music or listen to the music they give you with you app. You listen to your music while you follow the program's convenient audio alerts of when to start running or start walking . I just put it in my pocket and enjoy my run. I don't have to you my brain at all. (see below for link) you can download for I phone Ipod or an android phone.

The 10 K Trainer Pro is a continuation of C25 K so you start on week 9 as the weeks before that are exactly like the C25K. The free 10K App is now available as I just downloaded it and I have confirmed that is a 14 week program.
The full Marathon is a continuation of the half Marathon that is why I bought the Marathon one.

Now that I was able to download the free app for 10 K Trainer Pro, I will do this one with my family . In doing this app, I will feel that I have a goal to really sink my teeth into.
July 9 we will do a 5K and maybe depending on how we are all feeling maybe the 10 k .

C25 K is a free App
10 K Trainer Pro now a free app
13.1 for pink (Half Marathon)
26.2 for Pink (Marathon)

All apps are $1.99 accept for the free app for C25K
